Description 

The crux is technical face moves up and past a thin flake layback. Cool route and more pleasant way to reach the upper section of "Lovely to See You".


Location 

Start just right of Threshold Of A Dream in a wide corner system....step right and clip the first bolt..angle right on good holds to the flake and then power up to a good stance. Clip the last two bolts and then reach the anchors.


Protection 

Seven clips and purple camalot for the upper move to the anchor.

My least favorite of the new routes- some fun climbing, but a lot of scaling rock and lichen still. Whenever I smeared I sheared off little flakes and skidded my feet. Anyone climbing theis should take a brush and scrub on the way back down, particularly near the crux where it was hard to scrub on the way up....
The climb will probably improve with ascents, but it's still going to be a little 'directionless.'
